Headless corpse at Freedom Beach

PATONG: A headless corpse was found floating in the sea near Freedom Beach on Saturday afternoon. Police have been unable to identify the decomposed body, but assume the victim was male. “It was impossible to determine whether he was a Thai or a foreigner because the body was so severely decomposed. He must have died more than two weeks ago,” said Pol Maj Pisit Cheanpeth of Kathu Police Station. “It seems unlikely he died near the beach. He must have died somewhere else and floated here,” he added. Anybody who believes the victim may have been a relative or acquaintance is asked to telephone Kathu Police Station (342719). The police have had the body buried, where it will remain unless someone comes forward to claim it.
